Gbenga Ogunbote, the Head Coach of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC), on Sunday in Ibadan said while the team’s 1-1 draw with Katsina United FC 2023/2024 Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) match day 13 fixture was not too good team, it’s not a disaster.

“We will surely pick up our pieces and get back to winning ways,” Ogunbote said while assuring that the draw will not derail the ambition of 3SC to get a continental ticket next season.

While describing the draw as just a temporary setback for them, he lamented that the visitors deployed time-wasting tactics against the home team.

Ogunbote spoke during a post-match news conference.

The coach however lamented the fact that “Katsina United deployed several time-wasting tactics which favoured them because the referee tolerated it.

“For a game like this, there is no how we should not have had a minimum of 15 minutes added time because our opponents played dirty with time-wasting tactics.

“These are things that if you have your way in the Nigerian league, it goes for you,” he said.

Looking ahead to their next game, against the Abia Warriors in Umuahia Ogunbote said all hands must be on deck to get a positive result.

Bishir Sadauki, the Head Coach of Katsina United, however, said his team came to the match with the mentality of winning, especially after they also drew in their last home match.

He insisted that his team did not play negative or dirty football as alleged.

”We came with an attacking spirit and to win the game, and the match’s officiating was balanced,” Sadauki said.
